Over the summer months Oxjam Sheffield has been working tirelessly to bring the best local music into the limelight through a number of fundraisers. First was our launch party in June, which saw some of our favourite local DJs heat up the West End alongside some blimmin’ excellent handmade falafel from Falafel King. Then it was Oxjam Sheffield’s Challenge Week, where our core team and extra volunteers abseiled, completed the ‘live below the line’ challenge and ‘walked for water’, raising over £1.6k for Oxfam in the process!

 

Now it's time to add to that crackin' total, and see some great live music at the same time. Tickets are £4 and are available from http://tickets.partyforthepeople.org.uk
